Sunday, JustJenn and I loaded up her mini-van for our own Mobile Truck. This wasn't Kogi, but it did have cupcakes and a kid's car seat. We were rockin' as we drove and drove down to Irvine for the first CupcakeCampOC!
JustJenn brought dozens of sleeping baby cupcakes...a delicious Ovaltine cupcake is beneath this sleeping baby.
The professional bakeries set up their displays around the room, and the amateur cupcakes were brought out every 30 minutes to other tables. You were given tickets to get three pro cupcakes and unlimited amateur cupcakes. And damn, people attacked the amateur cupcakes. JustJenn and I brought ours out at 4:30 and in 30 seconds they were GONE. It was pure madness.
See all those people? It got even more crowded this this! Lots of people have the love for the cupcake. And the best part? The event raised a lot of money to fight human trafficking. Thanks to all the volunteers and organizers who made the event a success! Can't wait for the Los Angeles Cupcake Camp!
